Growing up!

Judd had another tooth fall out.
This one didnt want to, it hung in there as long as it could.
{I may have even tired to talk his best friend into beating him up ;)}
After days of Judd flicking and twisting and pulling and a little more flicking, the tooth was still there.
So go figure that the tooth finally fell out while he was sleeping.

Flashback: May 2009

Judson 4 1/2 years old
Natalie 14 months
Tucker 2 months
And Russ and I were both still in our 20s ;)

Mother's Day 2011

What a beautiful sun-shinny off to the playground kind of a day!

{Look at that front tooth-so close to falling out}

We were at the playground at Argyle School.
Judd wants to go to 18 different playgrounds this summer.
1 down, 17 to go :)

belly ache

The kids have all been struck with the stomach bug that’s going around :(
Judson has started to feel better. He had it the worst and missed 2 days of school last week. Judson also missed the April Fools Day race. That was a big bummer for him, he had been looking forward to it since he ran in last years race. New shoes were all ready to run too...

Natalie and Tucker started getting sick last night so they did alot of sleeping today.

Russ picked up to days of overtime and avoided us all. (Smart Man!)

This was s"crap" weekend. I saw the girls just for a bit this time. I was able to get a bunch of sewing done today during all the napping. I really missed all the fun chit chatting though.
I must remind my kids that it is not nice to be sick on weekends that mom has plans!

Hope that you all had a fun and healthy weekend!!!!

Here's some crafty things I made Nat this week :)

Spring is in the air....

{I wrote this a couple days ago and never published it.....spring, yeah right! we had snow today!!!}

....just not very warm air!

We are very happy to see the snow melting. I am ready to send some kids out to play {minus the boots and snowsuits and hats and mitten....}

But spring means....

-mud(like I have never swept my floor before kinds of messes, all over)

-sinus headaches (better than shoveling snow)

-almost t-ball time and MOST importantly.......


Russ has been tilling and as I said yesterday the onions have been planted. Getting them in this early really does make a big (literately) difference!

The kids had fun with the follow project. We have a new addition to our garden prep goodies. This was a gift and its pretty neat. It has a wicking mat to keep the soil consistently moist. So cool!

The kids had a blast making the little pods grow into dirt :) And they didn’t even make a mess! Judd did squirt Russ with water once. It was funny and it just might have been my idea ;)

*Notice our spring curtins are now up. Easter colors really don't match our house, but Nat is in love!
Tucker was sneezing :)
I love how Judd sticks his tongue out when he is concentrating!

a very hungry caterpillar birthday

You know how one idea turns it to another....
that’s what led Natalie and Tucker to having a very hungry caterpillar birthday.
Not only as a very hungry caterpillar a great book it also is a great theme for a birthday party!
Since our house is small we kept the celebration small with a couple friends and some yummy food and some super cute decorations :)

A HUGE Thank You to my friend Crickett for all of these fabulous photos!!!!
